Start your day on an optimistic note

Life as an entrepreneur has its challenges, we all know that. But the approach you take to the start of each day often sets the tone for the rest of it and prepares you to meet those challenges head-on. If you start your morning stress-free and relaxed, then the chances are you are more likely to be able to cope with the usual stresses and strains that come with running a business later in the day. If you go to the gym and have an early morning work out or go running, it tends to lead to more energy throughout the day. And therefore it stands to reason that if you inject a good dose of optimism to kickstart each morning, it can help you to stay positive and constructive as you go through the ups and downs of your day. So here are a few suggestions to get you to see the glass half full this morning and give you the optimistic boost you are looking for. Why not put your earphones on and listen to your favorite motivational entrepreneur speaker podcast or audiobook on your way to work this morning; or choose a favorite quote by a leading successful entrepreneur who inspires you and make it your screensaver on all your electronic devices today; or have an uplifting conversation over your morning cup of coffee with a fellow optimistic entrepreneur. As Alana Muller, a guru on networking and author of the book, Coffee Lunch Coffee: A Practical Field Guide for Master Networking says: “Optimism should be at the top of every entrepreneur’s checklist.”
